Comments:

League position: 11th AFC Bournemouth had now won one of their last nine games in the Premier League (lost four). The Cherries had now conceded in each of their last 12 home games in the Premier League; the longest current such run in the competition. They had now lost all eight games in the Premier League this season against the current top four (scored two and conceded 21).

Comments:

League position: 2nd Chris Smalling became the first defender to score in three consecutive appearances in away games in the Premier League for Manchester United since John O'Shea in April 2007. Romelu Lukaku had now scored more goals in all competitions in this season (27) than in any other season in his club career (previously 26 with Everton in 2016-17). David De Gea had now kept 17 clean sheets so far in this Premier League season; three more than any other goalkeeper.
